Visiting Bossy’s dad at work.
Bossy’s dad is a doctor, and for nearly a decade Bossy worked for him in his office, where Bossy witnessed firsthand his passion for medicine, his brilliance at seeing the big picture, his compassion for his patients and admiration of the details of their lives — but also the patients’ dedication and love for him, usually in the form of homemade food gifts containing rum, and various garden offerings.
But years before Bossy worked for her dad, she used to accompany him to work and sit in his waiting room creating long-ass paperclip chains.

Bossy’s father has a warm, welcoming, and compassionate face.

Word! I’d like him to be my doctor rightaway – I promise I’d provide numerous diseases … 😉
My dad was a builder and I loved to work in his office – with a similar career to yours, starting off with colourful scribbles of men and mice and ending up doing minor book keeping tasks as a school girl.

Every time you post a picture of your dad I think “That looks like someone I want to be friends with.” He has such kind eyes.
Bossy has such a lovely family!

Maybe Bossy’s dad should investigate that electronic medical record thing.

–>EVERY time I see pictures of Bossy’s dad, I think of Ernest Hemingway.
He looks like he could have penned The Old Man and the Sea or A Farewell to Arms.

An apple a day…looks like Bossy’s dad takes that advice to heart. Get it? To heart? I slay me. Okay, not really. That was pretty lame.

Bossy’s dad looks like my kids’ pediatrcian. I have a bit of a crush on him because anyone who shows so much interest in my kids is instantly hot.

My dad was a family doctor in a small town in Colorado. For payment he received deer and elk meat and veggies from the garden too. The 4th of July was the day all my siblings and cousins would get their immunization injections; then go to the parade.

Homemade food gifts containing rum are the best kind.

I bet Bossy played a role in the success of her father’s practice.
I bet Bossy’s father would love it if she would come back to work for him, or at the very least, sit in his waiting room creating long-ass paperclip chains.

If that is not the kindest face, I don’t know what is.
Reeb saysJuly 2, 2009 at 10:53 am
Somehow like it that I’m getting to know Bossy’s family well enough that I recognized Dad from the thumbnail.
Carroll saysJuly 2, 2009 at 11:50 am
And why, pray tell, is this not the very first entry in “Bossy’s Crushes Throughout History”?
I agree with Almudena — that image simply embodies the meaning of “kindness”.
Big hugs from a complete stranger in California to your clearly wonderful dad 🙂

Is Bossy’s dad accepting new patients??? Even though he’s probably 2 hours from me, I’m sure he’d be worth it.
Liz saysJuly 2, 2009 at 12:59 pm
Momo Fali beat me to it, but I’m going to reference it anyway. Love the additional detail of the apple!
Maria saysJuly 2, 2009 at 1:27 pm
He looks so kindly and sweet.
reen saysJuly 2, 2009 at 2:26 pm
Aw, can he be my dad too? He is clearly your hero – love it.
Elsewhere saysJuly 2, 2009 at 4:16 pm
Is that pyamabottom-girl in the background?
And is Bossy’s father interested in a long distance adoption?
Helena saysJuly 2, 2009 at 5:47 pm
Bossy’s dad looks sooo lovely!
Surcie saysJuly 3, 2009 at 9:16 am
Sweet post, Bossy.
jen saysJuly 3, 2009 at 9:20 am
My God, do you ever look like your Dad. 🙂
Heide saysJuly 3, 2009 at 7:50 pm
Like others said, he has a great face. Wise, kind, compassionate. Seems like a lot of that rubbed off.

Great Dad’s are the best. We’re so lucky!!!
